This last weekend was MCM London Comic Con, possibly the biggest event in the UK.
It. Was. HEAVING!! So Busy.
Enjoyed the run up to the event by making more original work. Added Princess Serenity to my collection of Galaxy Girls :)
My Table setup for this event was probably my favourite yet.
Going high and lining all of my new posters up looked great walking past. Still need to do some new prints, hoping to work on some new ones for Thought Bubble in a couple of weeks
My table buddy wasn't working this weekend but was cosplaying around in her amazing Chica Cosplay from FNAF. My other friends cosplayed with her as the Purple Guy and a Pizza Delivery guy. They kept getting mobbed for photos lol XD
After Saturday had ended I went to watch the Euro Cosplay Championship.
The talent this year was INSANE!! so many great entries. The UK rep who cosplayed Maghda from Diablo 3 looked stunning! I wish I got photos. There was also a Stoik cosplay from How To Train Your Dragon who was the Hungary rep and Christine from Phantom of the Opera, who I think was Croatian; they too were favourites :)
I didn't get any photo's of my accommodation but I was sharing a room with my fiance on the Sunborn Yacht, which was incredible. We enjoyed James Bond styled martinis on the balcony, enjoying the view :3
Look at that view! That's how close we were :D
Sunday was full of amazing cosplayers passing by. Managed to snap a few. I wish I could cosplay and work my table but it's just so difficult to do both - trust me I've tried lol
Not many commissions, which was kind of nice in the end as by Sunday afternoon I was feeling a little ill :(
Never the less I didn't let it spoil my mood. I did a fun commission of a Good and Bad Alice though :)
Overall it was a fun, yet very tiring event. I got home sunday and immediately went to bed lol xD
Next event will by DokiDoki in Manchester next weekend (7th Nov)
so if you're in the area make sure to check it out!
Its a neat little event at Manchester University in the Sugden Sports Hall and has lots of Japanese related events on.
Hello fellow arty peeps
Thought I'd do a bit of an update seeing as I have a busy few weeks coming up :)
MCM London Comic Con is next week and I can't wait!! So excited, it'll have been 2 years since I was last in the Comic Village for London.
Going to have lots of new stock with me, including new original pieces and new posters.
Paradiso and Inferno are brand new and will be available in A3 posters..
Really looking forward to seeing how they turn out; the colours are so vivid!
In other news, Autumn is in full swing and is possibly my favourite time of the year. Its too mushy where I live, so I had it delivered in a box to decorate my desk lol.
Finally getting to a happy place with my desk setup. Being able to hang art and lists on the back is great and its finally nice to have storage space for everything.
I've also been trying to do the #Drawlloween and #Inktober challenges. Unfortunately my hectic schedule has only allowed me to do the first few days. Boo :(
Still, nice to be able to do some doodling when I can.
Finally, after 2 years of waiting my fiance's Kingdom Death kickstarter arrived!
Its a gorgeous miniatures set with tonnes of figures to make and a great campaign to play. The artwork is gorgeous and the overall feel to the game is top notch.
That's a loooooot of sprues lol
Be sure to come and find me at MCM London Comic Con Next WEEK!! Table CL12 in the Comic Village
ta for now guys
Last weekend I was at MCM Scotland Comic Con and I had a great weekend.
Its an event I always look forward to every year. The Scots are so welcoming and friendly and the event was so much bigger this year!
The train journey up was long but pleasant. Had some stunning views of the Scottish Countryside before pulling into Glasgow.
Unfortunately I didn't get many of the city itself but its always bustling and busy and has some great architecture.
Wore an old favourite. I love my vintage dresses, I need more in my life :3 lol
I went bigger this year in prep for London in a few weeks by adding another row of grids to hang posters from. IT WAS SO TALL!!!
It's been a long time since I had some new original work done but I've discovered and new-found love for traditional work again. My Galaxy Girls attracted much attention with one selling almost immediately! It was nice to have a hand-drawn corner of my table again.
I also spent a great deal of my spare time drawing at my table or in my hotel room - something I haven't done very much of late. But it felt sooooo gooood to have the time to just make art again.
I saw lots of amazing cosplays but in my own busyness I didn't get to snap many of them x'D which is a shame. However I did snap this amazing Rose Quartz and Pearl from Steven Universe and a really cool biker-gang Sailor Mars
As usual myself and Morti went for tasty noms at TGI Fridays - sort of a convention tradition for the two of us if we both do well on the Saturday.
To celebrate I had a White Chocolate Martini - thinking it would be a fluffy chocolate drink - ho boy was I wrong. It was a gorgeous hazlenutty and choclately drink that was pretty much straight booze lol xD Very tasty none-the-less. It even came with mini marshmallows as a garnish (*3*)
Sunday, as usual, was a very commission heavy day. Two of my favourites was getting to draw the Jet Twins from Transformers Animated (my heart was squeeing!) and Ryuko from Kill la Kill that I went completely overboard on lol
Finally I arrived home eager and ready to make new work.
As a treat I bought NEW PENS!! and immediately set to work on a super spoopy Halloween Galaxy Girl yey!
My next event will be MCM London Comic Con at the end of October!
Its a big one for me. Haven't been in the London Comic Village since October 2013 - almost 2 years ago!!
I'm really excited to be back with a fresh outlook and new work to share. So come and find me guys!!
